Enemy activity had fallen into an eerie calm, but everyone felt the coming storm - a terrible storm, poised to unleash its fury upon the galaxy. It seemed as though the entire universe was holding its breath. Waiting. Whether waiting for the salvation of mankind or its demise was yet unclear.
About The Book:
Along with his newly found, rag-tag band of alien friends, Nick Bannon battles to keep his devastating technology out of the hands of the biomechanoid race known as the Mok'tu. Nick is flung to a distant world when his hyperspace experiment goes awry. Now his peaceful experiment could become the horrific weapon of the malicious alien race. Every species in the galaxy is in danger of total annihilation and it may take one man's greatest sacrifice to stop it.

This book is good not great. There are many other authors better at world building, space opera, or hard scifi. What the book does have is decent characters and enough action and suspense to entertain.
Sometimes it's a bit too cliche (e.g. time travel paradoxes, nanites) and sometimes a bit too campy (e.g. we're trapped in a room thats shrinking, a princess is leading the rebels). The aliens seem borrowed from central casting (e.g. We need a frog, a lizard, and a sexy green chick, stat).
Overall I like the book with two complaints:
1. The main character seems a little contradictory: I invented a hyperspace drive, but I'm dumb about everything else except if my life's in danger.
2. There is a lot of silliness to the story. You see, all the aliens seem to like practical jokes, and they don't think of simple ways to defeat enemy shields, but the primitive human does.
Hopefully as the series evolves it will take itself a little more seriously so the reader can as well.

Farscape like Space Adventure.
